1 Sermon Series * 6 May :11-18 What Counts is the New Creation!

2 Definition of the Gospel: Gospel (Gk euangelion Good News of and about Jesus Christ Essential Content of the Gospel: 1 Corinthians 15:1-5 (NKJV) 15 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.

3 The New Testament is filled with statements that the only means of salvation is to believe/personally depend upon the content of the Gospel. John 3:16 Romans 4:6 Ephesians 2:8-9 Acts 16:31 John 6:29, 40 Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified (Gal 2:16 NJKV).

4 The True Gospel of Grace Salvation Is Only By Grace Through Faith In Christ Plus Nothing!

5 Reasons for Galatians (Main Emphases) Grace vs Work Spirit vs Flesh Freedom vs Legalism & Licence

6 KEY SUMMARY Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation (Gal 6:15 NIV).

7 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Cor 5:17 NIV)

8 How Are We In Christ? So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham s seed, and heirs according to the promise (Gal 3:26-29 NIV)/

9 As a New Creation, we need to embrace TWO ESSENCE OF THE GOSPEL TRUTHS: See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand! (Gal 6:11 NIV)

10 As a New Creation, we need to embrace TWO ESSENCE OF THE GOSPEL TRUTHS: 1. OUTWARD VS INWARD

11 Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ. Not even those who are circumcised keep the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your circumcision in the flesh (Gal 6:12-13 NIV).

12 1. ESSENCE OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH: Christianity is not a religion of external works of the law but a relationship of inward work of grace know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ (Gal 2:16).

13 As a New Creation, we need to embrace TWO ESSENCE OF THE GOSPEL TRUTHS: 1. OUTWARD VS INWARD 2. HUMAN VS DIVINE

14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world (Gal 6:14 NIV).

15 2. ESSENCE OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH: Christianity is not a matter of what we do for God but what God has done for us Christ died on the cross for us sinners, becoming a curse for us (Gal 3:13)

16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule to the Israel of God (Gal 6:16 NIV).

17 The New Creation is what counts. We are the new creation through the cross of Christ and through Him ALL THINGS ARE MADE NEW * Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth (Rev 21:1 NIV) * I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God (v2). * He who was seated on the throne said, I am making everything new! (v5). * A new body resurrected and glorified (1 Cor 15)

18 How Do We Live Out The Gospel The True Gospel of Grace of Grace? DOING GOOD TO ALL For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love (Gal 5:6 NIV).

19 * If someone is caught in a sin restore that person gently (Gal 6:1) * Carry each other s burdens (v2) * The one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor (v6). * as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers (v10).

20 How Do We Live Out The Gospel The True Gospel of Grace of Grace? PRAY & PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL

21 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ s ambassadors (2 Cor 10:17-20a NIV).

22 How Do We Live Out As Ambassadors of Christ? we know the gospel we believe the gospel we define our lives by the gospel we live the gospel we proclaim the gospel

23 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ (Gal 1:3) The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers and sisters. Amen (Gal 6:18). I am a New Creation No more in condemnation Here in the grace of God I stand

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor un-circumcision avails anything, but a new creation. -Galatians 6:15

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor un-circumcision avails anything, but a new creation. -Galatians 6:15 IN CHRIST I AM CONFESSIONS In Christ I am a new man Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. -2 Corinthians 5:17 For in
